What to Expect: Reading, families, sounds, make-believe
Do the Voices is a unique and fun way for parents and children to share reading time.
Having a story read to you is fun, but the best bit is when the parent reading DOES THE VOICES! Wouldn’t it be super if you could make that parent do any voice you wanted them to? How about an elephant voice, all gruff and trumpety? Or perhaps a bossy pirate voice, a haughty queen’s voice, or a cute, screechy koala bear voice? Or maybe you could make them try and decide what a truck, a baby, or a fish would sound like if they could speak? Reading through this book, you’ll get a chance to try them all out!
Acknowledging the pivotal role that performance plays in shared reading, Do the Voices encourages readers and listeners to transform their imaginative interpretations of characters into silly voices as they read. At the same time, the story emphasizes the bond between parent and child through first-person narration and softly colored illustrations that emphasize feelings and relationships. Readers will love exploring how the voices and characters will change with each new re-telling of the story.
Overall, Do the Voices is a delightful way to simultaneously build family bonds, creativity, and literacy.
